There will be 5 well stocked aid stations along the course. We will be providing SKRATCH electrolyte drink as well as GU energy gels.
There are two spots along the course to meet your runner - mile 20 (Four Corners aid station) and mile 23 (White Rabbit trailhead). If you decide to meet your runner you'll have to pick either one of the locations to meet them. The drive time is too long between both aid stations. Here are maps to drive to Four Corners and White Rabbit.
